Gary on 26/09/2019 5 star rating

My friend recommend this car stereo to me for android auto. The unit looks so much better in reality and is very responsive. Ilford branch installed in for me and gave me a full demonstration on how to use it. Great Team. Happy customer will be recommending you guys to all family and friends.

superb all in one
david hilt on 27/04/2019 5 star rating

after putting off changing the radio in my car simply because its a pain and there is no spare room behind the radio to fit all of the wiring adaptors required for the stalk buttons, i was recommended this by the lads at the nottingham branch as its less than half the size of a normally double din radio in depth. turns out this little unit is amazing, sound quality and screen quality isnt compromised due to the small size only thing missing is CD which i dont use anyway. i couldn't be any more pleased with this and would certainly recommend it to anyone that doesnt want to struggle fitting a unit with all the wiring, made it all so easy thank you guys.

upgrade for my VW golf
marcus on 12/07/2018 5 star rating

i brought my DMX7018 after the 7017 was fitted to my previous car. i like that the new one is alot slimmer and also doesnt have alot of wires anymore, it does help when trying to get everything into the dashboard. having the buttons on the screen was different compared to my old one but it didnt take long to get used too. overall a good unit and i would highly recommend it to anyone that is after apple car play and android auto.
